happening now is that there are bottlenecks appearing and there's a shortage of homes on the market. and this is creating, kind of good difficulty, if you will, for builders and for the housing market. it's a shortage of homes on the market in many, many areas of the economy. >> brian, builders are are a little less confident than they were a month before but for technical reasons should home owners be, or people on the market be less confident about buying a house or do you see a good year ahead? >> i see a great year ahead. builders will catch up eventually. last year, i think housing prices were up almost 30 percent. that's a huge game and they're having a hard time catching up. we had lots of immigrant workers, many of them immigrated back out of the united states, or they've moved to different areas of the economy.
